We’ve all been there - standing in our kitchen window looking into our yard and we can’t help but notice the old junk car sitting outside. Whether your vehicle was damaged in an accident, vandalized, or is simply not worth enough to justify repairing anymore, it’s likely outgrown its welcome at your home.
Getting rid of your car has likely been on your to-do list for some time, but does the task feel daunting? Are family members begging you to remove the car from the property, and while you have every intention of doing so, does it just seem too difficult to figure out towing and junk car removal? When you work with Car Scrappers, you’ll be able to get cash for your car (plus free towing) faster than you think - in many cases, even on the same day!
How Long Does It Actually Take To Pick Up My Car?
Picking up a scrap car isn’t a one-size-fits-all operation, and while we’d love to tell every person that we’ll show up in the next few hours, that’s not always possible. It is common, however, to be able to have your car picked up by Car Scrappers on the same day you reach out to us.
Why is there sometimes a delay in certain situations while other pickups are more straightforward? Here are some of the things we need to consider:
- A busy day might mean that our tow trucks and flatbeds are out helping other customers, leading to a slight wait time before we can come to your home
- Similarly, tow truck drivers can’t be in two places at once, so if you place a call to us in the morning, we may not be able to come to you until the afternoon
- The safety of everyone involved is always of the utmost importance to the team at Car Scrappers - after all, we’re moving an item that weighs thousands of pounds! If there are weather conditions that might make picking up your junk car unsafe, we could delay our pickup
- Car Scrappers works with local representatives across the United States, and naturally, some parts of the country are more congested than others. Traffic issues may prevent us from completing a same day pickup
Any other range of logistical factors could require us to schedule your pickup a day out rather than completing our services on the same day.
